Hey everyone,

We've been allowing everyone to test drive the vehicles at /spawn. We're just about ready for them to be purchasable, however, first we need roads built for these cars to drive on!

In order for cars to be available for players, roads throughout MineCove must be constructed. In addition, these roads must meet rigid criteria for safe driving.

To start, all roads must meet the following specifications:

  • The road must be 13 blocks wide
  • The black road/asphalt must be made out of Coal Block
  • The yellow center marker must be made out of Yellow Stained Clay
  • The border surrounding the road, which is 1 block higher than the rest of the road, must be made out of Cyan Stained Clay

Illustration below -

Example of an in game road can be found at /warp roadexample

Additionally:

With exception to the road within 100 blocks of /Spawn, all roads must sit on or below ground level
All roads must have at least 5 blocks of air above them
Turns must be gradual, not abrupt corners (Check /warp roadturnexample)
Slopes must be built using stone slabs as the stairs (Check /warp roadstairexample)
Roads cannot have any impurities - The entire length must meet the above specifications and item requirements
Use of tunnels is advised to avoid having to dig out an entire mountain
You're welcome to branch off the road or redirect the road to go through your town, just so long as it meets the other ends of the road noted below

Where to find resources:

Coal blocks can be found via conventional methods or you can use /roadexchange where you can trade in ores and common blocks for coal blocks directly

Stained clay is commonly found in Mesa biomes, however prestiged players will have additional access to an abundant amount of stained clay in the Prestige World

Protecting the road:

When you've finished a significant segment of the road, submit a...

Hey everyone!

All unflipped Pokemon cards now have a chance to be any of the Gen #2 Pokemon. To pair with the release of Gen #2, we also have a collectors contest running until May 25th!

Check out the contest here: https://minecove.net/threads/may-2017-monthly-contest.11637/#post-48625

As a side note, expect to see quite a slew of new features to be released over the course of this month.

Have fun collecting!

Hey all,

Over the month of March we saw something that has never occurred before - There were practically no rewards for voting.

Money from voting had been removed, hourly online payments were gone, /fly was freely available for the full month. You had your afk kicker certainly, but really, what good was it when crates and hourly payments had been removed for March Madness?

Indeed, we saw a drop in votes because of this, however there were still some exemplary members in the community who voted anyway. Not out of reward, but out of support for MineCove. The purpose of this post is to recognize each of these individuals and give them all some special, albeit delayed, rewards.

  • To be deemed a dedicated voter, one had to obtain 31 total votes, or an average of one vote per day for March
  • Since our staff must obtain 100 votes monthly, they will have 100 deducted from their scores and the excess counted
  • Votes will be per single account only. Alts simply cannot be factored in due to the complexities of shared IP addresses
  • This count was taken at about 11pm EST, March 31st

We'll start with our top voter and work our way downwards, ties sorted alphabetically:

1. Satsao @ 249 votes
2. Jeff @ 243 votes
3. Durmack @ 237 votes
4. Xerlk @ 237 votes
5. Zakurab @ 181 votes
6. Seirra259 @ 176 votes
7. Demonic_Outage @ 175 votes
8. Nobilityy @ 167
9. Junebirds @ 150 votes
10. Trufflehunter_ @ 146 votes
11. d0ct0rwh00ves @ 145 votes
12. xxpinecone @ 145 votes
13. 1StormDragon @ 133 votes
14. Max9874 @ 132 votes
15. Drduckdodgers @ 128 votes
16. argyl @ 127 votes
17. ajgreen03 @ 122 votes
18. mentaldaveuk @ 122 votes
19. MuadDib3 @ 109 votes
20. SilkSpider @ 108 votes
21. GRIM11b @ 105 votes
22. stefanwang0904 @ 105 votes
23. Haynzie @ 101 votes

Hey everyone!

Happy April! MineCove's March Madness is finally over! Glad you managed to stick with us til the end.

As with the conclusion of a rather Maddening March, the following changes have been made:

  • Sales have ended (Buybuilds, Gallery, ABC ranks, etc)
  • MineCove's economy is open again (Thanks Astro!)
  • A new jumping McMMO skill has been added
  • Rank titles have been slightly adjusted

And last but not least - We're going to be releasing our new, custom, MineCove Website based game!

This is a project that Collin and I have been working in total secrecy on, having just last month finished the last bits so that a release version is now available for you to play. Please note - This is a non-Minecraft related game. We are looking to create an entirely new MMORPG and you have the opportunity to be one of the first players to join!

The game will work within your browser, no downloads are required. Please note that it may be a bit buggy.

Check it out here: Click to play Custom RPG for MineCove Version 1.0

Thanks guys! Please let us know your thoughts on March Madness and any feedback on our new custom game!

Hey MineCove!

The final update for March Madness - Wheew!

  • Added a limited time 'Troubling Portrait' to /market listings, infinite listings. After it is removed, it will never be sold by the server again
  • A MineCove Champion has been selected. The economy may return to normal if our Champion is able to complete the challenge
  • The MineCove Music bot on Discord will loop this until March Madness concludes
  • This is the last week of MineCove sales! Then the prices will change rapidly (increase), come April
  • The ABC rankup package was temporarily re-added to the webshop until March Madness ends
  • The new, Valphon bot is live on the server. It is still under heavy development, so it may not respond to queries and may make somewhat erratic comments at times. We're still working on getting it up to snuff!

Important to note: Following March Madness, all things currently on sale will increase in price inversely. (Ex. -10% discount now, +10% price tag later)

Enjoy everyone!
